This is the story of LSD told by a concerned yet hopeful father, organic chemist Albert Hofmann. He traces LSD’s path from a promising psychiatric research medicine to a recreational drug sparking hysteria and prohibition.We follow Dr. Hofmann’s trek across Mexico to discover sacred plants related to LSD, and listen in as he corresponds with other notable figures about his remarkable discovery.Underlying it all is Dr. Hofmann’s powerful conclusion that mystical experience may be our planet’s best hope for survival. Whether induced by LSD, meditation, or arising spontaneously, such experiences help us to comprehend “the wonder, the mystery of the divine in the microcosm of the atom, in the macrocosm of the spiral nebula, in the seeds of plants, in the body and soul of people.”Now, more than sixty years after the birth of Albert Hofmann’s problem child, his vision of its true potential is more relevant, and more needed, than ever.
This is the Word from the discoverer of the most important chemical since gunpowder, and even more potent. Just think: .00001 grams of LSD are enough to send you soaring far beyond the stratosphere. That's one-ten-thousandth of a gram, folks! This is one serious molecule! It is almost as if it had been specifically designed to do what it does to our brains.
While Hofmann decries what the Hippies made of his discovery, he strongly believed in its therapeutic potential, and continued to take it throughout his life, the last time at age 97.
Amusingly, in this book, Hofmann reveals that Timothy Leary, while at Harvard, tried to order 100 grams of LSD from Sandoz Labs, enough for one million trips!
The final chapter of this book is entitled "LSD experience and Reality", and attempts to integrate the inventor's ultimate reflections on his discovery and what it means. Here are the concluding words of this amazing book: "I see the true importance of LSD in the possibility of providing material aid to meditation aimed at the mystical experience of a deeper, comprehensive reality. Such use accords entirely with the essence and working character of LSD as a sacred drug."
Dr. Hoffman was a humble and kind person who writes very well. He was a fine chemist, spending his entire career at Sandoz Labs and inventing several substances that wound up being good sellers and are still being made and sold today. His amazing and famous bike ride is described in the first person as is some excellent descriptions of LSD effects in himself and others. He lived to be 102 and would have likely stayed round longer, but his dear wife of 72 years passed away at 96 and he followed her about 6 months later. This is one of the best books written about LSD, by the man who discovered it.
This book must be extremely rare to find a physical copy so if you are interested in reading it I suggest you look online (I read it at [...]). This book gives a complete history of the Swiss chemist Albert Hoffman's research leading up to the discovery of LSD-25 as well its effects on society at the time, its uses, and even his correspondence with various writers and other enthusaists (I bet you didn't know that he frequently met up with Aldous Huxley). A quote in his introduction describes what he intends to write about:

"It is my desire in this book to give a comprehensive picture of LSD, its origin, its effects, and its dangers, in order to guard against increasing abuse of this extraordinary drug... I believe that if people would learn to use LSD's vision-inducing capability more wisely, under suitable conditions, in medical practice and in conjunction with meditation, then in the future this problem child could become a wonder child."

The beginning parts on his initial work with egrot alkaloids and his synthesis of LSD is probably only of interest to a chemist, but it isn't hopelessly complicated (I enjoyed that section even with my minimal understanding of chemistry). It wasn't until years after its initial founding that he was drawn back to it and discovered its psychedelic qualities. It goes on to discuss the thrill/fear of his first accidental trip and his awe of its capabilities. This book is more than just an account of events and history. Unlike typical scientific writings, it often discusses his feelings and beliefs about LSD and even his travels to other countries for personal psychedelic research. The last chapter especially deals with spirituality and the use of psychedelics.

One great quality of this book is that it is highly objective and although it includes some of Hoffman's beliefs it carefully gives both sides of the story. It basically recommends LSD only for medical or careful psychological use under professional guidance, but gives enough information and insight as to the nature of the drug, that you are free to form your own opinion.

I highly reccommend this book since it so carefully covers all aspects of LSD and other psychedelics. This may be of interest to those with or without a firm understanding of chemistry
This book is downright incredible, from the actual practice of science to the insights on life. It contains many stories involving real people like Aldous Huxley, with whom Hoffman developed a close friendship. Many of the topics are magically real; Albert Hoffman dexterously paints an exceptionally realistic setting of Sandoz Laboratories, which is intimately invaded by something literally too strange to believe - the discovery of LSD-25, an entheogenic compound originally intended as an ecbolic drug to assist women labouring in childbirth, and which was accidentally found to have psychoactive properties (in quantities an order of magnitude LOWER than had ever been expected or experienced before in human history). Hoffman lovingly describes his highly-skilled laboratory work, and the ensuing adventures which propelled him to heights and depths of grandness and indignity he never truly expected of himself. I would expect that after reading this book many Hoffman fans will better-understand and so more enjoy the celebration of "Bicycle Day" on April 19th. An absolutely stunning, and eye-opening book, in which the author attempts to relate their knowledge and experience for everyone's benefit. Absolutely astounding, and fantastically eye-opening and informative.
This is a great book that delves into the science, spirituality and sociological implications of LSD and other psychedelics by the man who invented the drug. Hoffman is a remarkable man with some great insights. He also describes his encounters with other well-known individuals, as well as the sad fate of his drug. LSD was a lost opportunity, but perhaps still holds some hope as a drug of the future.
